There are plenty of three-row SUVs that are equally stylish and less bulky, Mercedes-Benz GL-Class is the first to come to mind, although more expensive, Acura MDX and Infiniti QX60 should also be considered.

Dual-zone automatic climate control, leather upholstery, eight-way power front seats, tilting steering wheel, auto-dimming rearview mirror, rearview camera, 7-inch touchscreen, Bluetooth phone, and audio connectivity, Homelink universal remote control and CD player, 11-speaker Meridian sound system with USB/iPod interface and auxiliary audio jack.
2023 Land Rover LR4 : Interior
Inside, the interior is a polished rotary knob transmission shifter that automatically rises from the center console as you enter the LR4. The highlight of a center console is dominated by simple round buttons to manage infotainment and climate control, all supporting the overall minimalist cabin motif. The 2023 LR4’s touchscreen and optional navigation system work well enough, but the setup still looks dated compared to newer interfaces found on various competitors, with slower response times and less fluid menu structures. You won’t find the total surface area of the touchscreen to be on par with the surprisingly large screens found in many of the latest and greatest luxury vehicles.
One of the most outstanding interior features of the 2023 LR4 is the exceptionally upright position of the front seats. You sit completely upright without having to stretch your legs forward, which highlights the exceptional headroom provided by the 2023 LR4’s long roofline. There are also good lines of sight through the steep windshield and wide side windows, including new rear “Alpine roof” skylights that provide more daylight for rear occupants.

The Land Rover 2023 LR4 comes with a 3.0-liter supercharged V6 that generates 340 horsepower and 332 pound-feet of torque. The LR4 is paired with an 8-speed automatic transmission that power to all four wheels. An automatic stop-start function is also standard, which turns the engine off to save fuel when you’re stopped in traffic. In testing, LR4 accelerated to 100 km/h in 6.9 seconds, an average time for its class. The EPA estimates fuel economy for the Land RoverLR4 reaches 16 mpg (15 cities/19 highways), and the figure is slightly below average for this class, comparable to competitors’ similar horsepower V8 models, although a properly equipped LR4 can pull a healthy 7,700 pounds.
2023 Land Rover LR4 : Safety
Standard safety features on the LR4 include anti-lock disc brakes, traction and stability control, hill descent control, hill start assist, rear parking sensors, and a rearview camera. Passive safety measures include front-seat side airbags and, on models equipped in this way, full-size side curtain airbags that extend to cover the third-row seat. A blind spot monitoring system is optional, as are a rear cross-traffic alert system and a 360-degree parking camera, and adaptive cruise control, which does not break fully to stop the 2023 Land Rover LR4 initiates braking if the system detects shutdown speeds are slow.
